    Sure, health, fitness, overall general wellness, blah blah blah. But what really motivated me to lose weight was wanting to look fabulous in costume. And now that I'm at my approximate goal weight, I've gotten my dream costume. Ever since the new Ms. Marvel was announced in the fall of 2013, I knew I wanted to cosplay her. My weight loss ticker background here on MFP since the very beginning has been a panel from her comic. I had this costume in my mind every single day on MFP, from 205 lbs down to 120.

    And now here I am, actually willingly prancing around in spandex, in public.

    From this (which is actually 15 lbs less than my starting weight, so it was actually worse):


    To this:


    I took a brief break from MFP in the last month, but two and a half months into maintenance, and I'm feeling fine. Now that I've got a good size collection of costumes that fit, I'm motivated to maintain my weight loss so I can continue to fit into them. It would be a shame to hang up Ms. Marvel anytime soon. Plus, I've got a whole long list of other costumes on the to do list!

    Yes, I did it all for the cosplay.

    I'm not talented enough to sew myself - the awesome people behind Celebration Generation are responsible for the costume and Ms. Marvel pictures.


    Wow, well done! You look amazing! Am doing the same trying to lose weight to cosplay. Only 4 weeks left so not going to happen for this comic con but hopefully the next!
